``Some'' or ``significant'' conflict between job and family is reported by 68 percent of working mothers. One-fourth have a daily conflict, according to a survey by Working Mother magazine. Supervisors who have an employed spouse are almost twice as likely to be accommodating to employees in such cases as supervisors in single-income marriages.

Mothers who work for flexible bosses are more than seven times less likely to want to quit, and four times as likely to say they love their jobs than women working for inflexible bosses.
